I don't have the best track record when it comes to attending concerts that I actually paid to see. A couple of summers ago I got tickets to see The Band Perry at the local county fair. That didn't happen.
Earlier that same year I had tickets to go see Collin Raye at a fundraiser for a local volunteer fire department. An ice storm hit just a few hours before we were suppose to leave and we heard many reports of cars off the road. We didn't dare venture out into that mess. And, probably ten years before that, tickets to Collin Raye once again went unused when a blizzard snowed us in.
Would the third time be the charm?
You bet! Collin was playing at a county fair about fifty miles from our house. In September, it was pretty safe to think we wouldn't have ice or snow to stop us from going. Actually, the weather on Tuesday was perfect.
What a great fair it was! We never did see the animals. We didn't get too far away from the rides, games and fair food before it was time for the concert to start. The concert was excellent and he played some of my favorite tunes.
